In today’s celebrity BFF news: Miley Cyrus says Katy Perry is her oldest friend in Hollywood. Who knew?
On Tuesday, Cyrus stopped by New York radio station WKTU to chat with Cubby and Carolina Bermudez about her new single, “Malibu.” Although “Malibu” is currently competing with Perry’s “Bon Appétit” in the music charts, the singers themselves have a more collaborative relationship.
“She’s been a friend of mine for a really long time,” Cyrus told WKTU’s Cubby and Carolina Bermudez. “We were actually just realizing the other day that next year, we’ll have been friends for 10 years.”
When reflecting on their friendship, Cyrus explained that Perry is, in fact, her oldest friend in the industry. “I think that’s my friend that I’ve known the longest. Which is really, really weird!”
The two pop stars have been friends since 2008, and according to Cyrus, “that’s like a really long time” in Los Angeles.
10 years of a friendship is a really long time in any city, but in Hollywood, it’s basically forever.
“When she came out with ‘I Kissed a Girl,’ I was doing the Hannah Montana movie, and I heard her on the radio. They said, ‘Who did you write that about?’ She said me!” Cyrus recalled.
“I screamed and started freaking out, and then she asked me to go to the VMAs with her. That’s when I started doing my whole VMA controversy,” she continued. “I was like, ‘I’ll go with Katy Perry!’ So, that’s how we met and we just stayed friends.”
This is such a fun story!The best part about this friendship, however — at least in our opinion — is that you can actually see it in red carpet pictures. Take a look back at Cyrus and Perry’s evolving friendship below, beginning back in 2008.

Friends who selfie together, stay together, clearly.
